An excellent clean story of timeless worth. The author takes us to a difficult time in history and shows us how beauty and strength is born of ashes. Highly recommend this read.

“It’s funny, because we all read history and we think, ‘Oh, I would … have risen up, I would have fought, I would have been an abolitionist,' And I tell them, ‘No, you wouldn’t have.
